Tackling Operational Challenges Post Implementation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Meter Data Management System
Utilities across the world are making increasing investments in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Meter Data Management Systems (MDMS). AMI and MDMS help utilities connect their customers to the smart grid in more dynamic ways, help customers make sustainable energy choices and manage their utility costs efficiently. AMI helps gather, evaluate and analyze volumes of meter data usage, as well as integrate with external devices for comprehensive monitoring of the system. However, utilities face several operational challenges once they have adopted AMI and MDMS.
